Ask The Imam Question and Answer

1232 Please can you assist and advise I have been told by a friend that according to a Hadith it is forbidden to marry a man who’s sister is already married to your brother. Please can advise if here is a Hadith and if it forbidden?
The above is incorrect. There is no restriction set in Islam, where a woman cannot marry a man, whose sister is already married to her brother.

There is a restriction on a man marrying a women who’s sister is already married to that man, unless she has been divorced or passed away. Probably the person who was explaining it to you misunderstood the Hadith.
